To quote: I've hooked up Showtime to the video decoder libraries already present on the PS3. This will accelerate h264 (Up to level 4.2) and MPEG2 video decoding so it can play up to 1080p content.
If you want to make sure that the Cell acceleration is actually used you can press L3 during video playback to see the status window. Make sure that the video codec mentions (Cell) at the end of the row. Just like in this screenshot.

154w ago - SCEA Associate Producer Michael Pulst has announced today that Top Darts is now on PSN for $9.99 in 1080p, complete with PlayStation Move support and custom dartboards!
To quote: Earlier this month we announced the PlayStation Move exclusive PSN game Top Darts by Devil's Details and SCEE XDEV.
I'm pleased to announce it is available today exclusively on the PlayStation Store.
As a quick recap, Top Darts is a game that utilizes the PlayStation Move motion controller to give the realistic feeling of throwing darts.
It's a game for all users who have an interest in playing classic games such as 501, Around the Clock and Cricket. Top Darts also has unique games such as Mayhem, Fusewire, Cat and Mouse, Stack Up and many more.
The game allows you to bring a lot of your own personality into the game. For example, you can customize your darts to match your personal style or use the PlayStation Eye camera to customize your avatar and even the dart board.
For an interesting effect while playing, you can use the camera to capture video that displays on the dart board during gameplay.
156w ago - EA Mobile Senior Producer Christophe Gomez has posted up a new video today spotlighting Tetris PSN in 1080p and 5.1 with PS3-exclusive multiplayer action!
To quote: We are launching Tetris on PlayStation Network and it'll be available to download from the PSN store in very early next year.
This version of Tetris boasts 5.1 Dolby Sound, 1080P HD graphics, plus six online and local multiplayer modes.
Of course, you can play Marathon mode by yourself in the boldest and brightest graphics ever, but what we're really excited about are three new PS3-exclusive multiplayer modes that will make this a must-have.
I can't go into much detail, but these new online, real-time multiplayer modes will be more fun and competitive than anything you've seen before.
A couple of weeks ago Alexi Pajitnov, the original creator of Tetris, got to try out this new PS3 version and absolutely loved it. And since we know how excited you are, we have a trailer ready to showcase just how awesome this gets.
Check it out above! This is going to be the definitive Tetris experience.
157w ago - Today SCEA Associate Producer Michael Pulst has announced that Top Darts for PlayStation Move is coming soon to PSN in 1080p!
To quote: Top Darts is a new PlayStation Move title coming soon to PSN, and it's a realistic darts game that is perfect for all users - from those who love to play darts often and know a lot of the classic games, to those more like me who enjoy playing but don't own a dartboard because the wall would look like Swiss cheese.
The developer, Devils Details, has been hard at work making this fun and challenging game to play along with your friends. They packed in classic dart games like 501, Around the Clock, and Cricket, as well as a large selection of other game modes.
For those who want to play with friends, Top Darts allows up to eight people to play in a range of games that are suited just for the multiplayer gaming experience. If you're on your own, work your way up the League and Cup modes to become a world-class darts player!
Top Darts doesn't just cater to the traditional darts player; there are also simultaneous game modes. This allows two players to play at the same time offering a fun and fast paced gaming experience.
